We represent residents and business owners located in the historic center of Arlington, Texas. From our quaint MidCentury neighborhoods to parts of bustling Downtown Arlington and the University of Texas at Arlington, to our mom-and-pop businesses and chain stores, to our religious campuses and apartment complexes, we try to balance both the charm of our leafy community and the changes taking place in our strategic urban corner of the Dallas - Fort Worth Metroplex.
We have the pulse of major concerns and opportunities that affect not just us, but all of Arlington. For example, Johnson Creek runs through most of HANA, as does the city's busiest boulevard, Cooper Street. We boast one of the city's most robust neighborhood action plans and are consulted about many proposed developments both inside and near our boundaries. We have high standards when it comes to new construction and work hard to balance the interests and expectations of all stake-holders.
Fortunately, we benefit from having a great community legacy, established by many Arlington business and civic leaders who were the original builders of our neighborhoods. These notables include the James Martin family, after whom AISD's Martin High School is named, the Farrar family, which still owns an office building on Park Row, plus the Watson's, Caton's, Maner's, Jordan's, King's, and Joeckel's. The oldest existing house in Arlington, built in 1893, is within HANA's boundaries. University professors from UTA have lived here, and some of our earliest subdivisions housed the first workers at Arlington's vibrant GM plant.
Generally speaking, HANA's boundaries run from Border Street on the north to Collins Street on the east, Pioneer Parkway on the south, and Cooper Street on the west, with a recent inclusion of the Meadow Oaks and Cedar Springs Terrace neighborhoods around Mitchell Street. We host quarterly meetings at various locations throughout our neighborhood and an annual Neighborhood Night Out each October. If you live here or own a business here, we welcome you to participate with us!
